It’s been three weeks. Three weeks since we have not felt the impact of the stairs. Maybe you were grateful for the time we spent in the Aberdeen Pavillion completing movements and running past giant tulips. Maybe, you found your groove in the #sunrise6k or maybe just maybe you have been counting down the days till we found ourselves in TD Place Stadium again.
Can you recall a time that you were excited to run stairs before November Project? Or a time that you were excited to challenge yourself to complete one more section. Maybe this morning was it.
Now, not anyone can walk into TD Place Stadium and just run stairs. This is not an everyday event that occurs. You can like many other Ottawians purchase a ticket an attend an Ottawa Fury or Redblacks game and partake as a spectator, which is an experience in of itself and we highly recommend. You can sit amongst 24,000 people and hear the roar of the crowd but does it feel different when your moving up and down those sections continuously for 29 minutes and 23 seconds? We would have to argue yes, hands down, without a doubt YES. Racing is HARD and it HURTS but showing up this morning and moving alongside other sweaty humans makes it that much more fun, enjoyable and motivating. Knowing that you are not alone is probably the most reassuring part of the whole morning, that someone will give you a high five, call you out to give 1% more or push you to the top. This is really a shout out to all of YOU, who keep pushing the pace and the number of sections completed. Shout out to Caroline and Seumas for the chase and for crushing those stairs this morning.
We hope your Wednesday has a little more pep, skip and pure joy to it.
Here’s to bringing soles together,
Lauren and Liz
